Tapad (http://www.tapad.com), the leader in cross-device ad technology, today announced that it has been chosen by AlwaysOn as one of the OnMedia Top 100 winners. Inclusion in the OnMedia 100 signifies leadership amongst its peers and game-changing approaches and technologies that are likely to disrupt existing markets and entrenched players. Tapad was specially selected by the AlwaysOn editorial team and industry experts spanning the globe based on a set of five criteria: innovation, market potential, commercialization, stakeholder value, and media buzz.
Tapad and the OnMedia Top 100 Companies will be honored at AlwaysOn’s OnMedia NYC event on March 19th, 2013, at the Sentry Center in New York City.
“This year’s OnMedia 100 is looking beyond dominating the advertising and public relations sectors. These disruptors are taking on e-commerce with a bright, new outlook. With the massive adoption of smartphone and tablet technology, the world of retail and commerce is embracing new ways to connect consumers with the products they desire. Micro payments, social commerce, and tap-and-pay are just some of the new payment paradigms that are ripping apart the established norm, both in stores and on the Web—and the OnMedia 100 companies are leading the charge.” says Tony Perkins, founder and editor of AlwaysOn. “This year’s OnMedia 100 winners are opening up new sources of commerce, especially in the fashion industry, bringing new ways for designers and retailers to connect with their target audiences. Back-end data evolution further helps to put the best products into the hands of the people trying to discover them. With the number of innovative ideas on the horizon, the digital media marketplace is poised to experience even more growth and positive disruption during the next year.”
The OnMedia 100 winners were selected from among hundreds of other technology companies nominated by investors, bankers, journalists, and industry insiders. The AlwaysOn editorial team conducted a rigorous three-month selection process to finalize the 2013 list.
“We are thrilled to be recognized as an OnMedia 100 company,” said Founder and CEO Are Traasdahl. “Tapad is committed to providing an accurate, unified view of consumers across all devices and we are honored that OnMedia has recognized how these efforts drive strong value to the advertisers and clients we serve.”
